Meet the Clergy

The Most Rev. Shaun McCann, STL, OTSJ – Rector

Originally consecrated on December 22nd, 2002 as Bishop of Alberta, Shaun McCann was shortly thereafter elevated to Patriarch and Primate of the Apostolic Johannite Church and has served faithfully in that role since June 23rd, 2003.

Since that time, Shaun McCann as Iohannes IV has led the Church through almost two decades of growth and development including expanding the Johannite Church to numerous centres across several countries, writing the All Saints Accord, establishing St. Raphael the Archangel Theological Seminary, redesigning the Priesthood Formation Program, producing a new edition of the Sacramentary, overseeing the translation and publication of the Levitikon: The Gospels according to the Primitive Church, as well as initiating and establishing the Church’s online educational media. He has also directed the formation of numerous clerics and lay leaders, and presided over almost two decades of Conclaves, the annual gathering of Johannites from around the world.

He is a dedicated student of the Western Mystery Tradition, having been recognized as a Master of the Temple in the Ordo Sacrae Flammae and served previously as Grand Master of the Friary. He is also an Initiate and Chevalier in several Knights Templar and Chivalric lineages, as well as a Martinist Free Initiator, Chevalier Bienfaisant de la Cité Sainte, Elus Coen, Master Mason, and a member of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids in the Druid Grade.

In addition to these undertakings, he is also an avid reader of history, and enjoys writing and playing music on several instruments when time allows. Bishop McCann has served with the Parish of St. Joseph since January 2002

The Rev. Deacon Angie Wisk-Nowell – Assistant Minister

Angie was raised in a non-religious family but has been captivated by spirituality for as long as she can remember. She has practiced in a variety of forms of Christianity ranging from Evangelical, Mysticism, and Gnosticism.

When she discovered the concept of the feminine divine in Christianity she was hooked and has been exploring this deeply since 2006.  Angie has been a member of the Parish of St. Joseph of Arimathea since 2017. She holds a B.A. in History and an MBA. She lives with her husband and two small children in, Calgary, Alberta.
